Biology Professor Justin DiAngelo Wins NIH Grant

Assistant Professor of Biology Justin DiAngelo, PhD, has been awarded a grant of $145,300 by the National Institutes of Health/University of Nevada at Reno to support his project, “Dietary and Endocrine Regulation of Sleep.”

The study focuses on understanding how hormones relay information to the brain about the availability of nutrients — and whether sleep needs to be reduced so the animal can search for food.  This work has implications for both sleep disorders as well as metabolic diseases such as obesity and Type 2 Diabetes.
